Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals / Emanuelle e gli ultimi cannibali (1977)

3.0 out of 5

An interesting entry from the late Mr. D'Amato, as it's pretty much what you would expect. A lighthearted sexploitation flick set in the jungle. Starring the ever-captivating Laura Gemser as an undercover reporter investigating goings on at a mental asylum. Through a discovery there, she teams up with anthropologist, Mark. Together the duo head off into the Amazon in search of a supposedly lost cannibal tribe.

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals features D'Amato's signature cinematography and camerawork, the erotic scenes are elegantly filmed. A stark contrast to the later half of the film, which becomes tonally a lot more dark and depraved.
